Customer Question
I have a maytag...

I have a maytag washer model # MAH5500B. I started a load of laundry and shortly afterwards the washer stopped. I think this happened right after the tub filled with water. I pushed the off button and then pushed the start button. The display shows the time (56) and then the display shows "do" and stops . The machine will not continue. I also get a "FL" code on the display at various times. What do I do now?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Give me a minute

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Bought in Nov. 2001. Model # MAH 5500 BWW

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No that's it. I just want to either get this to start up or if this is not possible, to release the "locked door" so that I can go to a laundromat.
